EDMONTON, Dec. 4 /CNW/ - Today ACAMP hosted a health & medical seminar, explaining how technologies like nanotechnology, biomaterials and microfluidics can play a powerful role in the creation of innovative healthcare products that help promote health and improve the quality, cost and outcomes of patient care, while opening new markets for Alberta companies worldwide.

"Nanotechnology is a platform for innovation in health, and many other industries, and ACAMP offers both technical and business services to move those innovations into the marketplace," said Doug Horner, Minister of Alberta Advanced Education and Technology. "Our government helped to build an accomplished biomedical research community in Alberta, and our renewed innovation system will lead to more biomedical breakthroughs, like Acticoat's silver treated bandages."

"Alberta is well known for innovative conventional energy applications, similarly, substantial investments in the development of health and medical applications have made the province a world leader in a host of medical applications," said Ken Brizel, CEO of ACAMP. "Innovative new products and services for improving the quality of health care within the region and worldwide will expand Alberta's economy."

In addition to health and medical technology solutions, the seminar features discussions by venture capitalists on moving ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace and the various ways to secure investment for entrepreneurs and start-up companies. Future ACAMP seminars will cover MNT (Micro Nano Technologies) for the conventional energy, agriculture & forestry industries and clean technologies.
